Assistant Teaching Professor of Computer Science Mayo Johnson took a group of his former and current students to the JOLT Cyber Security events Oct 6-8.

JOLT is a three-day cybersecurity challenge geared towards high school students, college students, and professional teams.

Those who participate have the opportunity to:

  • Improve critical thinking processes and mindsets needed to solve complex technical puzzles
  • Learn real-world tools and techniques in the cyber industry
  • Improve team building
  • Hands-On experience with new and foundational concepts of cybersecurity.
